It’s going to be an unseasonably chilly July if HBO and GAME OF THRONES has anything to say about it.
The second trailer for GoT kicks off with a serious-looking Sansa Stark in the snow with a voice-over from Lord Baelish counseling her to beware of enemies not just in the North or the South, but on all sides. And then lots of cool stuff. Check it out:
Among the coolest touches: seeing the Hound; Dothraki hordes vs. Lannister legions; dragons; crows; dragons; the Night’s King; more dragons; Tyrion; Arya with a sword; and Beric with a flaming sword!
In case you need a reminder of what was in the first trailer, watch it here.
Winter arrives July 16 on HBO.
Finally, we wrap up what has become “Matt Edmondson Monday” with a third funny musical parody clip: “Game of Moans.” This one features sexy Sophie Turner a.k.a. Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones, performing with Matt.
Also check out Hugh Jackman and Arthur Darvill singing for Matt.
Submitted for your disapproval: a study in craven cowardice and cringeworthy pettiness, courtesy of Theon Greyjoy and King Joffrey Lannister, the Vicious Idiot. Not that Jon Snow was above thinking with the wrong head when it came time to execute a Wilding captive, but at least he was erring on the side of sparing a life.
Things got off to a laughable start this week, with Theon (Alfie Allen) bursting into Bran’s (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) room to declare that he had captured Winterfell — repeating it over and over, and mentioning how he brought men and siege engines and everything. And, since there were no soldiers present, Theon had little trouble rounding up the assorted women, children and old men in the castle. Young Bran deftly skewered Theon when he asked about the years Theon was raised alongside the Stark boys, “Did you hate us the whole time?”
